And So It Is


I am feeling a bit "off" today, not really sure what exactly it is, just one of those days that I feel so very unlike me.

I think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's called them the "mean reds", though as I just typed those words it seems like the phrase "mean reds" could also be 1980's cold war lingo for those naughty communists.

Do you ever have those days when you feel all jittery inside? Like your heart is all a flutter, and not in a first love kind of way, but in a about to go to the doctors kind of way.

well that is how I am feeling, just anxious I guess, but anxious for what I have no idea.

I am feeling like I have too much to do....or not enough to do, it's hard to tell, anyway...I feel like I am floundering a bit.

Yesterday I worked for the majority of the day finishing the two pieces for the commission project for Tanekeya, I am really proud of them, I have enough materials to do a couple more as well, maybe to list for public sale in my shop, for some reason I was feeling very drawn to these pieces...

ok, now I am going to do something I hate doing but I just have to....I have to blog about TV for a minute....

Heroes was so good last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can;t stress that enough, I actually found myself clapping at one point and getting all teared up at the end. For those of you who don;t watch the show, you really need to, though it will be impossible to catch up wait for DVD.

It really is like watching a wonderful comic book come to life on the screen each week, just fantastic, plus check out the picture of my new, is it me or is he just the most perfectly crafted person you have ever seen?

I mean seriously he looks like a piece of art.

There is one giant draw back to watching Heroes, is that before it is have to suffer though Deal or No Deal (or as my bubs calls that show "Fat People Getting All Jazzed Up), now I am sure you are thinking, why do I have it on, why not keep the tv off until 9:00...

well you see, I tried that, but I am very anti clock, we have one in the bedroom but that is it, and without a clock I always was missing the first 10 minutes at least, so I always end up watching abit of the Deal show (which I loathe).

A way to get through that show though is every time they pan over to one of the "models" I make up what their career was before they hit it big on "Deal"...

like, Oh she was a hostess at TGI Fridays or she did nails at a Korean run salon in a strip mall next to a Fashion Bug...

I think my Bubs thinks I have some sort of Turrets Syndrome, but usually he just smiles and nods.

well I will leave you with that, I must get some work done...(by work I mean read a whole bunch of blogs), I am not feeling very inspired today, last week everything was inspiring me...and now I feel like I have nothing left to give.

It will change, it always does.

thanks for reading this, I will try my hardest to be a little less whiny tomorrow...

oh, and I am still on the Etsy Showcase today, so I am running a little surprise sale in my shop because of that...

15% off your entire purchase today, you just need to write "Showcase" in the message to seller section and I will send you a new invoice.

OMG - all through heroes last night I wanted it to be this morning so we could talk about it in your blog!

YAY GEORGE TAKEI. Also? Claire's dad is only a partial fuckwad but mostly awesome? Hooray? Even Eric Roberts couldn't detract from it. It might have been the best episode of the series.

Also - the "verification word" I have to type to post this? poxgag.

Ohhhh... I'm sorry that you aren't feeling the best. I've had those flutterings and not-so-great-feelings. Bad thing was that I had them on the Nashville Highway during rush traffic with my eleven-year-old nephew in the car and ME behind the wheel. Eep. Thank goodness it all turned out okay. Whew.

The new work is great! Love it! I think you are inspired whether you realize it or not. This might help:

It certainly inspires me! :):):)

Hope you feel better VERY soon, dearie. xoxoxo... :)

Oh Jenn your new work is wonderful!! So very atmospheric and dreamy. I think the ups and downs is part of the creative sensibility and at times is a (necessary) curse, but when we come out the other side it is a liberation that enhances our art. All the best my sweet!

Writing about it on your blog isn't wining. I don't think it is anyhoo. :) I don't watch that much TV anymore. I'm usually painting or looking over blogs..etc. CONGRADULATIONS on being on the Etsy Showcase. :)
